Not sure what disk you have, but my Windows 7 DVD has two installation folders: One for 32 bit and the other for 64 bit. Make sure you're actually installing the 64 bit executable and not the 32 bit. Also, you will need to download a driver disk image from Apple otherwise Windows 7 will be dead in the water after you install it. The Boot Camp instructions will guide you through the download.

I forgot to add.... if you downloaded Windows 7 from Microsoft, it depends on which version you chose. I believe you can download the disk as an executable and then burn the iso. (both 32 and 64 bit)

Disks? Might I ask where you got your copy of Win7?

If Windows 7 came via .iso file from Microsoft, have a look at the burn to DVD instructions. Did you use Toast or Burn? If not download Burn from here:-

And check this thread out:-


Burned a Windows 7 ISO on to a blank DVD...

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
